      This month, we will be showing the Yugoslavian comedy, Black Cat, White Cat (Crna mačka, beli mačor).  Its unusual for many reasons, and a beautiful capture of Roma culture.  Even though it's a narrative film and not a documentary, by using non-actors and actual Roma settings, Emir Kusturica gives a raucous but sincere portrayal of gypsy life.  Although it was filmed in 1998, so many of the issues and situations presented feel relevant still, as Roma struggle to keep a place for their traditional nomadic lifestyle in the post-Soviet landscape of the Eastern Bloc.


      "Mr. Kusturica so evidently adores all of the film's other characters that Black Cat, White Cat becomes a wild, warts-and-all celebration of their lives and like Fellini, Kusturica finds true grace where it's least expected
      and makes films utterly, uncompromisingly his own".


      -- Janet Maslin of the New York Times
